As there anything said of what happened in Buckland during the Troubles? Were there fights like in Tookland - did somebody die? Did the Master keep the ruffians out of his land by force or were they invaded?

Thanks for your help!

I have a question about the One Ring. How much did Frodo know about it before Bilbo told him the true story of how he got it?

I assume Bilbo wasn't telling anything of the Ring when he told the story to the little ones. Merry, after all, only learns about the Ring when he sees Bilbo disappear when the S-Bs are on their way, so he probably hasn't heard of it from Bilbo's story. But then he reads in the Red Book and as we learn in LotR he knows quite a lot about the Ring.

So, how much of the truth did end up in Bilbo's Red Book? We know the story about the finding of the Ring is wrong, but did he mention that he used this "gift" of being invisible to fool the spiders and later spy on Smaug, or did he just say that he hid very well?

Assuming that he wanted to keep the Ring a secret, just how much did he give away to the children? Did they really only hear the "I hid very well" version or did Bilbo tell more?

Thanks for your help!

What kind of money did the hobbits have?

I know they got silver pennies in Bree.

Bill the pony cost 12 silver pennies but that was about trice as much as the pony was worth.

So, I guess, 1 silver penny is quite a lot of money. What would one silver penny be worth here? Perhaps 100 euros/dollar? More? Less? Seeing that a pony costs much more nowadays than it might did in Middle-earth.

But what else was there? I mean, if a pony cost about 4 to 6 silver pennies what was the lesser currency? Copper coins?

Google makes me unhappy. I would like some information about how pneumonia might have been treated in the Shire - and all Google tells me is "Take antibiotics!"

Well, I know of some herbs I can use for teas and such (I have them all listed in a file on my own computer) but I don't know about other treatments. Any ideas?
